Thursday Night Live – Astronomy with Johnny Horne

November 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Johnny Horne retired in 2016 after working as a photographer for The Fayetteville Observer for 44 years. A lifelong amateur astronomer Johnny photographs the night sky from a backyard observatory in Stedman he built in 1978. Since 1989 he has written the  Fayetteville Observer’s monthly amateur astronomy column “Backyard Universe”.  Johnny has served as a photography resource leader for Sky and Telescope magazine’s astronomical expeditions to Mexico, the Caribbean, Africa, and  Iceland. He has written astronomical product reviews for the magazine since 1987.  Since 2009 he’s taught continuing education photography classes at FTCC. Please note, this will be an early evening star gazing, but many things will be visible with the telescope.

Planets Jupiter and Saturn will be viewable that evening if it’s clear as will the first quarter moon. Ages 16 and above. This event is FREE for members and non-members pay Garden admission.
